2013 saw completion of the $315 million historic preservation effort to upgrade and restore the landmark Thurgood Marshall Federal Courthouse (originally designed by Cass Gilbert in 1936). Our scope of work included the development of lighting design strategies for public areas, courtrooms, judge’s chambers, library, and exterior site lighting utilizing the latest US Federal Court [GSA] and PBS Standards as guidelines. Services on the project included programming analysis of light level requirements and computer generated lighting calculations, specifications for lighting equipment, control systems and historic custom luminaire design. This project was designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification.
